i have been under the truck with a scope listening and i went over the axles..springs..drive shaft..heat shields transfer case..while it was jacked up. i know its not twisting the shaft. hell mine makes the noise just putting it in gear. i wish you were closer to man i need someone else who is determined as me to find this freakin noise.

The only thing that I can compare it to sounds like a loose spider gear in the differential, when the slack is taken up it hits the side of the case. But when you put up one rear tire and rotate it back and forth the sound 'feels' like its coming from around the transfer case. Also is anyone with a 2wd having the same issue?

To be honest I wouldnt even know how to check the spider gear, is there a simple way to check it?

I have gotten used to using the GoPro for things like this. Clamp it underneath the truck looking at the pumpkin, center bearing, or whatever, put it up on the highest frame rate, and go for a drive to replicate the issue. I have solved several issues this way.

I finally have an update to this! I went to the local drive shaft shop here because the dealership was no longer a help. they gave my truck a look and said it was the drive shaft for sure, probably cracked the welds is what he said. So he made me a steel one and said if it doesn't fix the issue then I don't have to pay for it. Slapped it in earlier today, noise gone! Also test drove up to 90 mph with no problems, vibrations etc.. Ill report back in a couple weeks to make sure

Is there any evidence of cracked welds on the old one? That's what I'd like to see.

I can't see an actual crack but the welds on it aren't exactly what you'd expect from a factory part either. Theyre spoty and full of porosity all the way around the driveshaft.
